PUNE, India, Sept. 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PRGX Global, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRGX), a business analytics and information services firm headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, today shared its plans for its India operations at a press conference in Pune, India. Speaking at the press conference were Mr. Romil Bahl, President and CEO of PRGX Global, and Mr. Tushar Sachdev, Vice President and head of India Operations for PRGX India Private Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of PRGX Global.
PRGX Global is the pioneer of new suite of services called "Profit Discovery." The focus of Profit Discovery is improving clients' financial performance via a combination of audit, analytics and advisory services. "As we expand our portfolio of value propositions that enable real profitability improvements for our clients, it is imperative that we continue to source the best talent globally," said Mr. Bahl. "As a core element of our global talent strategy, PRGX has established PRGX India with a first office in Pune – and we have already demonstrated that we can attract top Indian talent," continued Mr. Bahl.
PRGX India was formally inaugurated in July 2010. PRGX's Indian operations will provide business analytics, information technology, sales and marketing, and other support services to PRGX's global operations. PRGX's Indian operation is envisaged to incubate innovative services and deliver value to PRGX's client teams around the world.
Mr. Bahl further stated that, "Over the coming period, PRGX will serve an increasingly global set of markets and clients. In our core business, the non-U.S. share is nearly 50% of revenues. Asia, in particular, represents significant growth opportunities for PRGX. While we already have a presence in China, Malaysia and other Asian markets, the establishment of a wholly-owned entity in Pune now positions PRGX to compete in India, which will be an important growth market for our services over the next five to ten years."
PRGX India plans to add capabilities as demand grows. Today, the core capabilities used to deliver our services include data mining, procure-to-pay business process expertise, and knowledge of finance operations. "PRGX India expects to expand its workforce to as many as 200 professionals over the next three years. The talent requirement for PRGX India is aligned with PRGX's core business needs. The workforce will consist of experienced accounting graduates, experienced IT professionals, and analysts," Mr. Sachdev added.
